Local businesses are beginning to better understand the importance of being correctly represented on all of the major 1st tier local directories like Yelp, Google My Business, MerchantCircle and numerous others. Whether you’re a small coffee shop, a franchise with multiple locations, or a high end residential renovation company, proper representation of your brand in these important directories is an absolute necessity these days.
A decade ago, your business may have only needed a website to make the phones ring with new potential customers. Today, it’s mandatory to appear on all of the relevant directories and review websites because that’s where the consumer is searching.
When potential buyers are searching for a high-ticket service such as “residential remodeling” or “home construction”, they spend a good deal of time in the research phase. They want to know everything they possibly can about any company they consider doing business with. If they search for your company and see little to no information or on the flip side they see a bad customer review, it pretty likely that they will move on to your competitor immediately.
The issues that motivated that client to business with your competitor instead of you could have been avoided. This is why local directory submission and review management is a necessity. This is a service that will inspire potential consumers to choose you instead of your competitors!
